About Restaurant Riche:
A dining experience since 1893. Most Stockholmers are familiar with Riche. An institution in Stockholm’s restaurant world, the Riche establishment has been around for a period that spans three centuries, from the late 19th century – until today.
After WWII ended the 28 year old Tore Wretman took over the restaurant. The era that began came to form a school for restaurants in Sweden in many ways. With his new perspective Tore Wretman introduced a number of new foreign influences to the Swedish cuisine. At the same time he brought forward traditional Swedish fare and cemented in a restaurant environment.
The most recent major change was initiated at the end of the last millennium, when interior designer Jonas Bohlin was commissioned to create a personal and characteristic atmosphere throughout the establishment.
